The apartment is on the 1st floor of my home. I live in the duplex unit above where you will stay. The house is in an Afro-Carribbean working-class neighborhood and is conveniently located. The subway station is 5 minutes away. It takes 15 to 20 minutes to get to Manhattan, and 45 minutes to get to Times Square.
Everyone is welcome to stay with me regardless of sex, race, religion, or sexual orientation.
THIS IS A NON-SMOKING LISTING. Read my listing thoroughly before booking.
The apartment is located on the ground floor of a two-family home and has a separate entrance. The apartment is equipped with high speed internet, and there is over the air TV. We provide an Apple TV with Netflix and Hulu. There is a portable washing machine, if you would like to use it, please let me give you a tutorial. We provide guests with breakfast food including cereal, oatmeal, and coffee. We also provide guests with an assortment of snacks and bottled water.
The queen sized bed within the bedroom comfortably sleeps two people. There is a full sized futon bed in the living room, which can sleep an additional two people comfortably. We also have a pack n play crib for families with young children. The couch is comfortable enough to sleep an additional person.
The place is yours to enjoy, you are free to come and go as you please. You are welcome to have people come visit, but no overnight visitors are allowed without prior approval. If you end up up having unbooked guests staying with you, your reservation will be modified or cancelled.
Interaction with guests
When possible, we give guests a quick walkthrough of the unit, share house rules to keep an eye on, and share tips on the neighborhood. Beyond that, I'm always available to answer any questions you may have.
Other things to note
**This listing is for NON-SMOKERS!!** If you or anyone in your party smokes, do not book my listing. If someone is caught smoking I will give you the option of cancelling your booking or paying a $200 penalty.
We have a Roomba that runs at 1pm, in our unit, and takes roughly an hour to complete cleaning. Please, let me know if this becomes a problem for you and I can adjust the timer per your schedule.
We live in the duplex above where you will stay and we have 3 cats and a young son. Our son usually wakes up around 7am and goes to bed at 8:30pm. During weekdays he is in school from 7:30am till he returns at roughly 6pm. I'm mentioning this because we have had a few guests mention that the wood floors are loud. If you are guests who are planning on lounging around rather than going out for the day, then this may not be the listing for you. We do provide white noise machines to help with any noise pollution. There is also a fan, space heater, and air conditioner to help provide additional white noise. If you are a light sleeper and need additional help sleeping, we also provide ear plugs. New York City can be rather loud due to the noise of transportation, sirens/alarms, and dogs barking, so it may take a while to get used to.
** GENERAL RULES **
1. Be courteous and communicative
2. Clean up after yourself.
3. Be green and conserve energy (do not leave fans/air conditioners or lights on all day)
4. No overnight guests (people not included on the reservation)
5. No smoking. This is a non-smoking listing. This means, that if you smoke do not book my place, not that you can smoke outside as an option.
6. No illicit drugs
I am a user experience manager for Viacom. My son, my wife, and I live in the duplex unit above the apartment. We look forward to making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Anytime you have questions or need help, we will always make ourselves available.
